Rob Reiner Taking a Leave From CA Commission

Rob Reiner, who has been under increasing conflict-of-interest fire, is taking a leave as chair of California's "First Five" Commission. The Commission has spent many millions on pro-preschool advertising at the same time Reiner has been sponsoring a ballot initiative for "universal" taxpayer-funded preschool, which has qualified for the June ballot. The leave was announced in the wake of a bipartisan call for a state audit of Reiner's commission.

Hugh Hewitt has been posting on this all week. He also had a humdinger of an interview with a decidedly uncurious Los Angeles Times reporter, Dan Morain. Fortunately reporters such as the Sacramento Bee's Dan Weintraub and Bill Bradley of L.A. Weekly have taken the story more seriously.
